Freescale Cup

Management:Prof. Ramin Tavakoli Kolagari
Faculty / Organisation:Faculty of Computer Science

As part of the “Freescale Cup” educational research project, student project groups were given the opportunity to participate in  the student competition of the same name organized by Freescale Semiconductor, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of semiconductor products. The competition focuses on the field of autonomous driving: The students modify and program special model vehicle kits and use the resulting vehicles to compete against other students from all around the world. The model vehicles must be able to autonomously complete a circuit which is peppered with crossings, hills, and other obstacles. more about this project

Vehicle number plate recognition

Management:Prof. Harald Kipke
Faculty / Organisation:Faculty of Civil Engineering
Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Physics and Humanities

For municipal traffic planning, reliable information on the utilization of roads, cycle paths, car parks, etc. is essential. For this reason, so-called cross-sectional censuses have been carried out regularly in Nuremberg since the 1970s. To this day, such censuses are largely manual work and are often carried out by students. Conventional censuses enable differentiation according to place, time, and type of vehicle, But they are not able to track traffic flows beyond the measuring point. more about this project

Strohm und Söhne - Formula Student Electric Strohm + Söhne NoRa 3

Management:Prof. Ulrich Grau
Faculty / Organisation:Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Building Services Engineering

Based on the success of the 2014 season with the Formula Student vehicle NoRa 2, the project “Formula Student Construction and Development of a Racing Car” was again included as an elective in the bachelor's degree programme in Mechanical Engineering. The aim of the elective was to design and build a fully functional electrically powered racing car in compliance with the official Formula Student regulations. This racing car NoRa 3 took part in two competitions in Italy and Hungary as part of the international design competition Formula Student Electric. more about this project
